ETS280.1 Travel Writing

In this course students critically examine travel narratives by writers and explorers around the world from the 14th to 20th centuries. Objectives include to provide a foundation for students’ inquiries into nonfiction travel literature and memoirs and to identify recurrent themes in travel writing such self-fashioning, the body, Orientalism, imaginative geography and the tourist gaze. For Syracuse students, this course can count as Humanities credit in the Arts and Sciences Core, but it does NOT meet the lower division “gateway” requirement for the ETS major, nor will it count as an upper division critical course toward the major.
